I was going to write an involved post on how we made it to Florida and back with four kids and not spending a fortune on luggage fees. Then I found this post and she touches on a lot of the points I was going to make!
My main tips would be:
-Pack light, because you can do laundry often!
-Wear heaviest clothes/shoes/layers on the plane
-Have each child be responsible for their backpack/rolling bag with snacks, toys, lovies and activities inside
-Parents use larger carry on to tote electronics and cleaning supplies
I don’t agree with her diaper policy or sugaring up the kids. But that’s just my opinion! Little One is three and a half and we had no issues on our long drive to Canada or the long day on airplanes to Florida. She mentions rewarding good behavior before it turns bad, which I totally agree with. But I would reward with new crayons or stickers rather than candy. We find behavior goes downhill fast after the addition of sugar!
